The City of Toronto is inviting residents to participate in an upcoming webinar to learn about the City’s proposed approach to reducing greenhouse gas emissions in Toronto, and its connection to public health, local economic development, and social equity.
TransformTO: Climate Action for a Healthy, Equitable and Prosperous Toronto is a collaborative project to engage the community in reducing Toronto’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 80 per cent by 2050 while also improving health, prosperity and equity. Led by the Environment and Energy Division and The Atmospheric Fund, the project has engaged more than 2,000 Torontonians to date through public consultation events, community conversations, an online survey and more.
The focus of the TransformTO webinar is on the long-term transformations that are needed to reduce emissions in Toronto, as identified in the second report issued by TransformTO. The report will be presented to Parks & Environment Committee on May 4 and, if approved, to City Council on May 24, 2017. The report will be available online on April 27.
The webinar, which will provide an overview of the TransformTO process and recommendations, will be offered twice: April 27 from 6:30 p.m.to 8 p.m., and May 2 from 12 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Each webinar will begin with a 30-minute presentation followed by a 60-minute question and answer period.
More information about TransformTO Webinars and Report 2 are available on the TransformTO website.
